I stayed in two different rain forest lodges when I visited southern Costa Rica; Lapa Rios and Bosque Del Cabo. They were both delightful, with wonderful food, friendly staff, and close encounters with the local fauna. Lapa Rios was pretty high end, having hosted celebrities and royalty in the past. Bosque Del Cabo’s guest cottages did not have electricity or hot water, but it was fun and a great place to stay and get close to nature. I enjoyed them both. The dinners at Bosque Del Cabo were served by candle light at a large communal talbe, and they were the best I experienced in Costa Rica.
As we were walking the beach, I saw this strange sight approaching. It was unclear what it was until they got very close. What a surprise.
Hi! I really enjoyed your photos. We’re a family planning travel to Costa Rica. We have kids who are crazy about animals and want to learn as much as possible. Of Lapas Rios vs. BDC, which location had the better guides?
